Caught playing Wurm at work?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to think of excuses for when the boss appears behind me. These are what I've come up with so far.


  1. Oh no, some weird medieval virus has taken over my computer!
  2. I'm in a virtual conference. Those trolls are from Marketing.
  3. This is a special company project. That's all I'm allowed to say.
  4. I'm on my lunch break. HR said I could take it now, because of my bowel problem.
  5. What do you think of our new recruitment strategy?
  6. Let me finish these hand-eye coordination exercises that Occupational Health recommended.
  7. I'm testing new products in a virtual environment. The lava fiend should start using our photocopier any moment now.
  8. Unless you leave me alone, members of my kingdom will hunt you down and kill you.

(I expect other people can think of better ones.)

Or.. you just run the IT dept and don't have to make up these excuses, because your computer is where no one else can see the monitor. :)

or do what i did at my 2nd last job and get the boss and half the people on my floor to play wurm when ever we needed to take our "hourly 5 minute at random times" break which turned into the boss pming you at random times asking "did you get that report from such and such person yet if not pm him and tell him to stop smiting away so much"

9. Wait, this isn't what we're supposed to be doing?


10. This? Oh this is the new team building exercise sent over from corporate...you should probably get started, you've missed the first 15 minutes already.

I can't play wurm at work and if I could, nothing would get done!


 


I keep an eye on the forum from my phone during breaks though! :)

*my grandma is in the hospital again, she needs me! and this is only way we communicate together*

Sounds so strange that it might even work

If they ask why shes in the hospital, do not reveal that she actually works there

Have wurm window in a 20x20 pixel window, just enough for mousecursor to hit mine over and over.

I'd tell them "stop interrupting me while I am trying to work".

Fairy:  "Elf!  What the heck are you doing in Wurm again?  Get back to work!"


Elf: "Have you seen the latest mission is making five bazillion woolen caps?  Sounds fun!"


Fairy: "Move over from the computer, let me get started on those caps before the mission finishes..."


 


Tell your boss you live in Wurm and only visit real life every so often.
